In a recent interview with TooFab, Freddie Prinze Jr. was brutally honest about the movies he has starred in over the years. The actor talked about some of the movies that he regrets. One of those movies is Scooby-Doo as well as Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.
"I've been on two jobs where I had regret doing it and Scooby was one of them. "- he said, as quoted by eonline.com In Prinze Jr's opinion, they were not being honest with him, so he was not pleased. "It wouldn't be something I would do.
I have zero interest," Freddie continued. "There was just too much bait and switch on the first one. The studio was not honest with me in any way shape or form."
There was a request for him to take a pay cut to continue with the film.
There was, however, a strange thing about the fact that all of the actors requested a raise from the director. There was no doubt in his mind that they were making a lot of money. "I remember thinking, 'Hold up, who's giving them the raise? Me or y'all?' Like we made you guys three-quarters of a billion dollars, you can't afford to pay them what I'm making on this? Screw that." It was not the film he dreamed of acting in, but he is happy that it left a positive impression on a large number of children.
"I didn't fully appreciate Scooby until it was seen and children came up to me," he said. "When I was able to appreciate the experience through their souls...then all of a sudden, I was like, hey man, like, we did good. Like, we did good.
There's legit millions of people that love this movie. It's not the movie I wanted to make, but I appreciate that and it made me change my outlook on it."
